ANTH 032D. Mass Media and Anthropology

This intermediate course explores the anthropology of modernity and the mass-mediation of modern forms of knowledge. It examines how the emergence of mass media has produced new kinds of subjects and social relations: from novel images of nationhood to mass experiences of crime, war, and violence. Along the way, the course also asks the impact of new media technologies on how anthropology itself imagines identity, community, and locality.
